Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone, and now it's time to face the scale. You know, that little device you've been avoiding for the past few months? Yep. It's time.
Don't worry. Everyone gives themselves a little slack when it comes to fitness over the holidays. They only come around once a year, and New Year's brings that extra incentive to get back on track. So even if the scale displays some harsh numbers, relax.
Download these three apps, and you'll have everything you need when you head back to the gym.
1. Sworkit Lite
Sworkit Lite gives you access to several different exercises and workout plans. The workouts can be curated into customized plans and paired with playlists, so you'll never get bored when you exercise.
The best part about Sworkit is that your workouts can be as short as 5 minutes long, so you can always squeeze them in, even if you only have a few minutes available. And, you don't need an expensive gym membership either. The available workouts don't require any fancy machines or equipment. Most, in fact, use your own body weight as resistance, or a common household object, like a chair.
In addition, you can remove certain exercises in order to accommodate any restrictions you have. For example, if you were injured and need to avoid exercises that place strain on certain joints, you can delete those exercises from your routine.
